The parasitic dinoflagellates in the genus of Hematodinium infect broad range of crustaceans around the world, causing fatal diseases in multiple species of wild and cultured crabs and subsequent economic loss. In order to explore this host-parasite interaction in the early development stage of infection, mRNA transcript levels of eight key immune-related genes, including LGBP, proPO, PPAF, serpin, α2m, and three PTcSPs were quantitatively assessed in Portunus trituberculatus artificially… CONTINUE READING
